Carpet Cleaning Tips…That Might Surprise You!

Have you ever heard that you should avoid walking on carpet in your bare feet? It's true. Most people think that as long as they take their shoes off and their feet are clean, their carpet is safe. In actuality, whether clean or dirty, our feet produce oils that can be absorbed by carpet. Once carpet has absorbed oil, it is more likely to attract and hold dirt.

Here's another "dirty secret" you may not know about carpet: Cleaning with too much shampoo or cleaning solution can cause a residue to build up on your carpet which, you guessed it, can cause dirt to stick. In addition, over-cleaning or cleaning too frequently can cause carpet to lose its stain resistance.

Using a home cleaning machine might also pose as a problem. For a good cleaning, carpets should be steam cleaned with very hot water by a professional cleaner with professional equipment. In most cases where home cleaning machines are used, the water that is put on the carpet is cold, or warm at best. In addition, these machines often aren't very effective in extracting the water back out of the carpet, letting it seep deep into the carpet pad in some cases. This creates an environment perfect for mold and mildew.

To sum up, vacuum regularly to pick up loose dirt and debris, but leave the deep cleaning to a professional. I recommend one that has equipment that is mounted in a van, as these seem to be the most powerful. Also, wear your socks (clean socks preferred) but not your shoes. Follow these basic tips and you can add years to your carpet.
